Why Elevation

Enabling nonprofits to grow in a digital world.

MissionOur Mission

Traditionally, technology and nonprofits have existed in separate worlds. At Elevation, we are bridging this longstanding gap by combining these two ostensibly different industries into one. We believe that technology is a catalyst that can propel nonprofits into making a greater impact. Our team at Elevation is that bridge and our solutions are the driving forces behind nonprofits generating quantifiable change and inspiring others to do the same. This idea is the foundation of how we do business every day.

VisionOur Story

Our roots originated in Washington D.C circa 2002. We wanted to pursue our inherent desire to give back to our local community, but realized that our talents were best served in the technology industry. After finding an outlet that satisfied both our profession and our passion, Elevation came to be.

It started as a simple idea – build high-quality and affordable websites for nonprofits so they can continue doing more good. But we didn’t stop there. Since 2002, we’ve built a multi-city presence with branches across the United States. We’ve developed an assistance program that makes it easy for nonprofits to access the necessary funding for web design, but without the bureaucracy of applying for grants and loans. Our 10+ years of working with nonprofits has allowed us to build a community that supports our multi-city offices and the financial base from where we can provide affordable web design solutions.

BalanceOur Values

At Elevation, we’re not just committed to web design. We recognize our greater responsibility – to work with nonprofits whose values we support and are aligned with our own.

We Are Environmentally Mindful

We are committed to leaving the world better than we found it. As part of that commitment, we have adopted various initiatives and in-house changes that govern our everyday business to be more environmentally friendly.

  • We take in pride in a nearly paper-less office. We refrain from printing documents as often as possible, and encourage our clients to do the same.
  • We’ve gone completely digital. All our communication, documents, invoices, receipts, and contracts are conducted online.
  • Our employees take advantage of public transportation.

We Are Diverse

Our team is an eclectic mix of men and women motivated to make an impact. Although we come from various countries, backgrounds, and professions, we are united by the same altruistic values.

Our diversity has proven to be one of the strongest qualities of our business. We have the capacity to empathize with a variety of nonprofit organizations and identify with their causes. Learn more by getting to know our team.

We Are Flexible

We’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of nonprofits ranging from grassroots organizations to international nonprofits. With our 10+ years of experience, we’ve learned that there is no one-size-fit-all process. We get to know each nonprofit individually, and then adjust our approach to cater to their specific wants and needs.

We Are Open-Minded

We may know web design the best, but our clients know their nonprofits the best, and if we combine the two in an open-minded environment, anything is possible.

That’s why communication is a vital element of our business model. In order for us to be our best and give our best, we must be open and honest with our clients, and ask they do the same. We enjoy speaking candidly with them and place a high focus on feedback.

We Are Driven

At the core, we are motivated to create nonprofit websites that make the world a better place, but it’s more than that. We believe in building websites that drive quantifiable change.

Our digital solutions come equipped with the necessary installations, tools, and plugins so that our clients can effectively measure the impact they are making.
